IN THE UNITED STATES DISTRICT COURT
WESTERN DISTRICT OF ARKANSAS
BEVERLY M. DRAPER
MICHAEL J. ASTRUE,
Commissioner of the Social Security Administration
On January 31, 2013, Plaintiff filed a Complaint pursuant to 42 U.S.C. § 405(g) seeking
judicial review of a decision of the Commissioner of the Social Security Administration. (Doc.
1). Plaintiff also filed a request for leave to proceed in forma pauperis on the same date. (Doc.
2). After review, it is found that Plaintiff is unable to pay for the costs of commencement of suit
and, accordingly, the following order is entered this 31st day of January 13, 2013:
IT IS HEREBY ORDERED that Plaintiff's motion for leave to proceed in forma pauperis
is granted. The Court hereby directs that a copy of the complaint, along with a copy of this order,
be served by the Plaintiff by certified mail, return receipt requested, on the Defendant, Michael
J. Astrue, Commissioner, Social Security Administration, as well as, Eric H. Holder, Jr., U.S.
Attorney General, and Claude S. Hawkins, Jr., Assistant U.S. Attorney, without prepayment of
fees and costs or security therefor. The Defendant is ordered to answer within sixty (60) days
from the date of service.
Regarding, the name of Plaintiff’s minor child, the Federal Rules of Civil Procedure
clearly set forth what information must be redacted from filings made with the court.1 See FED
R. CIV. PROC 5.2(a).
The CM/ECF Policies and Procedures Manual adopted by this Court also
states that attorneys should not include sensitive information in any document filed with the
Court unless such inclusion is necessary and relevant to the case. See CM/ECF Policies and
Procedures Manual for Civil Filings, at www.arwd.uscourts.gov. This "sensitive information"
includes the names of minor children. Therefore, the Clerk is directed to seal Document 2
as it contains a minor’s full name. Counsel for the Plaintiff is put on notice that documents
filed in CM/ECF shall not contain the above information.
IT IS SO ORDERED this 31st day of January, 2013.
